Lovick far ahead in Snohomish County executive race

Snohomish County Executive John Lovick appeared headed to victory Tuesday, capturing a considerable lead over Sultan Mayor Carolyn Eslick.

In Tuesday’s totals, Lovick had 56 percent of the vote to the 44 percent won by Eslick.

The contest does not give the winner a full, four-year term. Instead, this race was about who will serve out the remaining year of former Executive Aaron Reardon’s third term.

Lovick was appointed last year to succeed Aaron Reardon. Reardon resigned in May 2013 after revelations of an alleged affair with a county employee and that an aide had interfered in a criminal investigation centering on the executive’s office.

In this fall’s campaign, Lovick touted his 31 years as a state trooper, nine years as a state representative and two terms as the county’s elected sheriff.

Tonight’s vote count can be viewed  here.
